To understand how the nervous system learns, interacts with, and takes advantage of the properties of
system and the external environment to achieve task goals.
We perform behavioral experiments in a virtual environment, which affords precise control over human-environment interactions and accurate manipulation of sensory feedback. Neurophysiologic measurements are complemented with mathematical modeling and computer simulation to gain insight into nervous system function.
The knowledge gained through our research will aid in the development of innovative techniques for improving mobility and function in patients with neurologic disorders.
